ELLE (Australia) - - Contents - What does Novem­ber have in store for your ca­reer, love life and friend­ships? Astrologer Ash­ley Otero re­veals all


The month kicks off with a full moon on Novem­ber 4, which could re­veal pri­vate mat­ters be­tween you and some­one you work closely with. Whether you’re at odds with a co-worker or have de­vel­oped an un­healthy re­la­tion­ship with your col­leagues, make sure you ad­dress any ten­sion and get things out in the open. With Venus and Jupiter join­ing up in your sign on Novem­ber 14, you’ll also be en­ticed to splurge this month, but watch out for overindulging – too much of a good thing can be drain­ing. Late in the month, the dark moon wel­comes you to re­ori­ent your sense of am­bi­tion and open your­self up to new learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.


Ex­press­ing your­self freely and al­low­ing your­self to spend time con­tem­plat­ing deeper thoughts are the keys to cul­ti­vat­ing your grow­ing in­tu­ition and work­ing through con­fu­sion this month. But don’t take your­self too se­ri­ously! Although it might be hard to re­sist turn­ing a crit­i­cal eye on your­self, par­tic­u­larly around Novem­ber 28, the more struc­tured you try to be or the more you hold your­self to cer­tain stan­dards, the more you’ll feel an urge to lighten up. Don’t be afraid to let your hair down and your wild side out to play, es­pe­cially around Novem­ber 12 and 26.


The full moon on Novem­ber 4 will give you a strong nudge to get cre­ative and stay on your toes at work, but unan­tic­i­pated fam­ily mat­ters are set to com­pete for your at­ten­tion. Stay open to change and will­ing to adapt your dreams to help nav­i­gate this month’s dizzy­ing plan­e­tary as­pects. As the dark moon ap­proaches on Novem­ber 19, ques­tions and con­cerns re­volv­ing around your sup­port sys­tem are due to sur­face. Think about those who bring you more drama than they’re worth and con­sider whether they need to be cut from your so­cial or pro­fes­sional cir­cles.


The full moon on Novem­ber 4 will high­light your re­la­tion­ship with your fam­ily. Don’t be sur­prised if con­ver­sa­tions be­come heated when your ideals about fair­ness are chal­lenged. Home is where the heart is, but you may need to make some un­ex­pected changes if your home and heart are to truly align. Novem­ber also holds the seed for some pro­found changes around your call­ing. The Venus-jupiter con­junc­tion on Novem­ber 14 and the new moon on Novem­ber 19 will bring tran­si­tion and new op­por­tu­ni­ties for growth.


Through­out Novem­ber, you could find a num­ber of doors open­ing with var­i­ous pro­fes­sional op­por­tu­ni­ties be­hind them. Your task is to dis­cern which ones have sub­stance and which are too much of a gam­ble. Re­gard­less of what­ever doors you walk through, be mind­ful not to take on too many projects, or you’ll risk burn­ing out be­fore you re­ally get started. Fi­nances could also fluc­tu­ate this month and may not be the best in­di­ca­tor of whether you should pur­sue a cer­tain en­ter­prise. Con­sider which of­fers will be most sus­tain­able to your goals in the long run.


Novem­ber is set to bring ac­tion, spon­tane­ity and a striv­ing for bal­ance within your re­la­tion­ships. The full moon on Novem­ber 4 will offer abun­dance and sur­prises when it comes to love and money. Your cup may over­flow, but be mind­ful that for­tune and af­fec­tion can fluc­tu­ate. Con­sider what mat­ters most and al­low that to nat­u­rally flow in and out of your pos­ses­sion and you’ll find it easy to en­joy what­ever falls into your lap. A new moon on Novem­ber 19 is a good time to set in­ten­tions with the ex­change of re­sources, such as money and strat­egy. Just be pre­pared to com­pro­mise.


Novem­ber be­gins with a fo­cus on bal­anc­ing work and your well­be­ing. Stay­ing ac­tive, both phys­i­cally and men­tally, will offer un­ex­pected grat­i­fi­ca­tion if you’re will­ing to work through some tem­po­rary dis­com­fort. The month also brings ma­jor em­pha­sis to your part­ner­ships. Set time aside to con­nect on a deeper level with peo­ple from your inner cir­cle, es­pe­cially on Novem­ber 14 and 17. While re­la­tion­ship goals are ap­pro­pri­ate for the new moon on Novem­ber 19, don’t let an in­ti­mate en­counter get away by stress­ing about the work that still lies ahead.


This month will light up your re­la­tion­ships, en­cour­ag­ing you to be as thought­ful as you are zeal­ous when com­mu­ni­cat­ing in your inner and pro­fes­sional cir­cles. Close friends or a part­ner will have a lot of in­spi­ra­tion to offer. Even if some of their ideas seem overly am­bi­tious, lis­ten­ing to what they have to say could bring more sat­is­fac­tion at work – if you ap­ply their phi­los­o­phy with good judge­ment. But be care­ful of over­do­ing things around Novem­ber 14. A lack of bound­aries could see you make prom­ises you can’t keep or share more than you should with some­one.


The full moon on Novem­ber 4 high­lights a need to bal­ance com­pet­ing de­sires be­tween where you are and where you want to be. There’ll also be chances for ro­mance and cre­ativ­ity. Whether you chan­nel your imag­i­na­tion into work, ex­tend an in­vi­ta­tion to a love in­ter­est or rel­ish in other pleasures, Novem­ber will bring plenty to de­light in. Although you can ex­pect pas­sion projects to offer you a good time around the dark moon on Novem­ber 19, a yearn­ing for deep sat­is­fac­tion could spark con­flict with a sig­nif­i­cant other. Be sen­si­tive to their needs, but be­ware of ma­nip­u­la­tive be­hav­iour.

LEO JUL 24 – AUG 23

A full moon on Novem­ber 4 brings de­vel­op­ments to your ca­reer goals and gives you plenty of places to go and peo­ple to see. Don’t be sur­prised if un­ex­pected travel plans get thrown into the mix or your sched­ule gets a bit messy due to un­fore­seen changes. Most of the month, how­ever, calls you closer to home. From catch­ing up with sib­lings to be­ing en­gaged with your lo­cal com­mu­nity, stay­ing con­nected to your roots will be im­por­tant to your heart’s sat­is­fac­tion. Con­sider ex­plor­ing your an­ces­try or get­ting in touch with rel­a­tives around Novem­ber 14.


An over-sat­u­rated so­cial cal­en­dar could make it hard to keep your life or­gan­ised this month. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween you and your fam­ily or room­mates could also feel a bit abra­sive with your rul­ing planet, Mer­cury, cruis­ing through Sagit­tar­ius. Whether you’re learn­ing how to voice your own needs or sim­ply un­der­stand oth­ers more clearly, there’ll be an em­pha­sis on pay­ing at­ten­tion to your thought pro­cesses and how they en­er­gise or dis­tract you from your goals. Make sure you weigh up in­her­ited per­spec­tives ver­sus newly formed thought pat­terns dur­ing any of the dis­cus­sions.


Your daily sched­ule could feel a bit dis­or­gan­ised this month as sev­eral un­fin­ished tasks pile up and de­mand your con­sid­er­a­tion. Think of this as a tran­si­tion phase re­quir­ing at­ten­tion to de­tail as you in­te­grate new el­e­ments into your ev­ery­day en­vi­ron­ment. Be pre­pared for prac­ti­cal con­cerns around what’s “yours” and “mine” to arise when your rul­ing planet, Venus, gets ac­ti­vated dur­ing the full moon on Novem­ber 4. From cre­at­ing clearer bound­aries with a friend to try­ing to ne­go­ti­ate a fairer ex­change be­tween you and an­other, sta­bil­is­ing the give and take will be vi­tal this month.
